Intern Seminars & Events

News Post

As a PILI Intern, your education doesn’t just happen at your agency. PILI organizes a series of weekly educational seminars for Interns over the summer, covering a range of hard skills and substantive law topics related to public interest law and pro bono. We also discuss career development ideas for law students interested in public interest law. This year all our programs will be virtual through Zoom. These weekly seminars start with Orientation on June 3rd and run through mid-August. Additionally, each fall and spring, we host educational programs for school-year PILI Interns. Attendance counts towards your hour requirement.

  • For all law student interns: All law student interns are invited to attend our virtual summer Educational Seminars, even if you do not receive funding through PILI. Learn more and sign up for updates »
